Who’s Who for Scotland In the EU Elections

April 27, 2019 Ballot Box Scotland 0

The election no one expected is officially going ahead. With a Brexit extension until Halloween, the UK is obliged to elect MEPs to the European Parliament. A total of 49 candidates are standing for 8 parties or as independents, compared to 54 candidates across 9 parties in 2014. 

Leith Walk By-Election Result

April 12, 2019 Ballot Box Scotland 0

It was an absolute corker in Edinburgh’s Leith Walk ward for the first City council by-election since Ballot Box Scotland launched. Although it was prompted by a Labour resignation, the SNP had a clear lead in the ward in 2017 which I reckoned stood them in good stead for winning the by-election.
